Hedge has released Postlab for Media Composer, a cloud-native system for Avid editors, allowing them to work remotely, but together, through Avid’s own collaborative tools.

Postlab for Media Composer serves as an extension to an on-premise Nexis or other Avid-compatible NAS/SAN storage, eliminating cumbersome access gateways and high latency associated with cloud-media workflows, and it is usable regardless of available bandwidth. Where bandwidth is insufficient for real-time cloud operation, media files are prefetched and securely cached, so they’re available for immediate editing.


Collaboration in the cloud is clear-cut for Composer users with Postlab

A flexible pricing model lets post facilities and media businesses use the Postlab platform without upfront commitment, and can scale or reduce team sizes when needed.

Paul Matthijs, co-founder and CEO of Hedge, said: “Media companies need a way to collaborate remotely right now. Given the uncertainty around the pandemic, many do not want to make significant investments or sweeping infrastructure changes. Postlab for Media Composer extends facilities’ on-premise storage by providing much-needed secure remote editing for a small incremental cost. It’s fast, secure remote editing that delivers the same great experience of being in the facility.”

It includes “industrial-strength security without having to rely on slow and hard-to-configure VPNs”, so editors can work from anywhere, even with slower internet connections. Postlab can keep existing workspaces in sync and makes Avid’s Bin Locking feature work in the cloud so users can seamlessly collaborate on projects without overwriting each other’s work: a crucial component of any workflow, on-premise or in the cloud.
